Alright... somewhere this post got lost in blogger land. This autograph request was returned to me in March. I was sure I posted it... but there it is.. gone. So you get it now. Pretend the ink is still fresh okay? For me?
I wrote to Mr Richard, (and it is MR Richard) sending him a photo and a card, along with a fan letter bordering on worship.
For those of you that don't know, Mr Richard won 11 Stanley Cups as a player. More than any other hockey player in the history of the game.
Elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1979 after retiring in 1975. His number 16 was retired by Montreal in December of 1975, almost immediately after his retirement.
Classy all the way. Thank you Mr Richard....
